Mind Your Own Retirement Episode 29

Font Size:

In episode 29 of Mind Your Own Retirement, Deeksie and Kaye give us a glimpse into their ‘wild’ New Year’s Eves and explain why their new year’s resolutions don’t include sky diving or learning to ride a bike.

Kaye then shares the surprising results of the recent YourLifeChoices Retirement Income Review Survey, in which over 5000 members shared their real concerns and feelings about retirement and government support. She reveals the shocking discrepancies between the government’s recent retirement income review and the survey findings.

Troy Waite, the regional manager of customer value and development at Apia, shares 20 years of knowledge working with Australia’s leading over-50s insurance specialists. He tells us about their partnership with the Heart Foundation, ‘Steppin Out’, and the social and physical benefits of walking.

    There is far too much “padding” in these episodes with much babble within !! The useful info probably makes about 5% of the content !!

    And me too. If I want chatter, I can get on a bus.

    Perhaps some lonely souls want the sound of a human voice, but I would prefer you put the guts of anything into print where I can read foe myself.

    Sounds like the Government is not the only one not listening put it in print seems to be the consensus.

    Rather harsh criticism for people who are just trying to do their jobs, but having said that, I agree having listened to just one podcast.

    I just cancelled my online subscription ($5 US pm) to Pocket, a good source online of many diverse subjects. Mainly because I have a ‘filed’ backlog of so many items, ranging from 5 to 30 minutes reading. Also it is slightly (?) US oriented. I continue to subscribe to an excellent AUSTRALIAN online site called The Conversation ($10 A pm). Excellent articles from excellent sources predominantly INDEPENDENT Australian. Worth a look at their Facebook site to gain a good insight to what is offered. The Conversation, check it out and see what you think 🙂 Happy New Year to all and send best wishes and thoughts (and a spare dollar) to those folk fighting and impacted by the horrific bushfires ravaging OUR country.

      p.s. I should have mentioned that the $10A pm to The Conversation is to assist in the operation of the service and is voluntary, you can view it for free 😉 The cancelled subs to Get Pocket is now going, with whatever else I can spare every month, to Bushfire Relief orgs.
